Acne is a chronic skin disease in which the sebaceous glands become inflamed leading to the hair follicles becoming blocked. Excess production of sebum combined with incorrectly shed skin cells is responsible for this blockage. This, in turn, can bring about symptoms such as blackheads/ whiteheads, pustules, nodules, cysts and papules. The disease affects a large percentage of the world’s population and is found most commonly among adolescents.
Acne represents nearly a quarter of all dermatological conditions. Causes and triggers vary from person to person but in most cases include:
- Use of certain medications
- Family history
- Certain cosmetic products
Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we provide anti-acne treatment in Dubai that has been clinically proven to help reduce the effects of acne. The emotional impact of acne should not be taken for granted as the symptoms can lead to low self-esteem and loss of confidence. The treatments we provide are designed to make the condition easier to manage and to reduce the outward signs. With our help, you will feel more confident in your appearance than ever before.
How do our specialists diagnose your acne?
We provide our patients with the most effective anti-acne treatment Dubai has seen, but before we can do so, we must first complete a full consultation. Often, acne can mimic other similar skin disorders; we examine the affected area of skin to determine whether you have acne or another condition such as rosacea.
Our specialist will then carry out a full review of your medical history and ask you questions related to your lifestyle, condition and hobbies. Such questions will likely touch on subjects such as drug allergies, other diseases that might impact treatment, previous history of depression or mood disorders, use of contraceptives, etc.
Once we have confirmed the presence of acne and assessed the type and severity, we will create a treatment plan to help alleviate the symptoms. At Blue Tree Clinics, we provide anti-acne treatment in Dubai that is tailored to the individual, and our methods are far more effective than over-the-counter remedies.
What sort of anti-acne treatment options do we provide?
Regardless of the type of anti-acne treatment in Dubai that you’re prescribed, you must bear in mind that results can take several weeks to become visible. It’s important that during this time you stick to your treatment regime as any deviation could set your progress back and allow the acne to regain a foothold.
In some cases, acne may never disappear entirely, but so long as you take your treatments as prescribed, you should continue to notice significantly improved acne. The purpose of an anti-acne treatment Dubai can rely on is to rid your skin of the pimples and prevent their re-growth. These treatments also help to minimise/ prevent scarring too.
In order to maximise the results of our anti-acne treatment in Dubai, we will often prescribe a combination of medications. This includes one to treat the initial symptoms and one to manage the condition long-term.
Topical retinoids are often found in fixed-dose combination products and are widely used for both treating the initial symptoms and managing the condition afterwards. As a derivative of vitamin A, the long-term benefits cannot be overstated, but it’s worth bearing in mind that topical retinoids will also irritate the skin.
An issue all too common with antibiotics is that the bacteria often develop resistance over the course of the treatment. In some cases, the bacteria might start out with a complete resistance rendering the antibiotics useless. With Benzoyl Peroxide, the P.acnes bacteria is unable to adapt in the same way. This antimicrobial agent is available in different concentrations and will eliminate the cause of your acne.
If there is severe inflammation present, then topical antibiotics might be prescribed. These not only combat the P.acnes bacteria but also help to reduce the inflammation too. As antibiotic resistance limits them, they are often combined with other treatments such as Benzoyl Peroxide.
Hormonal or Antiandrogen Therapy
Hormonal/ Antiandrogen Therapy is targeted at women and is an anti-acne treatment Dubai residents can opt for if endocrine abnormalities are present. This type of treatment is also used if the acne is proving particularly resilient.
Oral retinoids are a type of anti-acne treatment in Dubai that are often used to treat the most severe cases of acne. This method of treatment is particularly effective at tackling cases of acne where other treatments have failed. Oral isotretinoin is an example of an oral retinoid that is particularly effective at treating the various factors of acne.
Due to the possibility of congenital disabilities caused by these drugs, a strict contraceptive regime must be followed during and for up to a month after treatment. Oral retinoids are, for obvious reasons, not suitable for pregnant women.
Oral antibiotics work in much the same way as topical antibiotics and also have the same limitations. The difference is that oral antibiotics are taken in pill or capsule form and are somewhat more powerful. This makes them an excellent choice for more chronic cases of acne.
